Of course, we start with the capital city of Chile. As in most capital cities with a high number of inhabitants and a large demand for English, wages are the highest here. But also expect to pay the more on rent and other expenses.
Looking to save up? Santiago might not be the best spot because the exciting area might tempt you to spend more money than you intended. The city is packed with museums, cafes, restaurants and shopping malls. And in the nearby areas, you can easily get away for skiing, wine tasting or a dip in the hot springs. There is so much beauty around you that leaving the country is hardly necessary for an unforgettable getaway during school breaks.
Aside from having a large number of job opportunities in Santiago, you’ll also find a variety of different class types, as the capital city is home to public schools, language centers, and private international schools.
Valparaiso is an artistic coast town that has captured the heart of many teachers over the years. It’s colorful, charming, cute and (almost) impossible to get affected by the Monday blues here.
Step into a world of street art, alleyways and a laid-back atmosphere. Call Valparaiso your home and you will probably never want to live anywhere else.
Valparaiso is known for being an educational center, with schools, homestays, and private language centers. Teaching opportunities are abundant, so there’s no reason not to consider this city for your new home in Chile.
Close to Valparaiso, well pretty much next to it, but with a completely different vibe as this city is polished and neat. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and where some might feel right at home in the messy chaos of Valparaiso, others will definitely favor a place that’s a little more organized. Vina del Mar is such a place. It’s Chile’s fourth biggest city and that comes with plenty of options to find a job.
Vina del Mar is a weekend getaway for many wealthy locals, most of them living in Santiago and looking for some beach time. But you could actually call this beautiful beach escape your home.
About 500 kilometers south of Santiago you find a town that is famous for two things: music and education. The first one probably tells you a bit about the level of fun and entertainment you can expect in this city. The second means that despite it not being the biggest town, but still the second biggest in the country with about 220.000 inhabitants, there are plenty of opportunities for teachers.
Concepcion is home to a number of universities and where students can be found, English teachers usually aren’t far either. That also means it shouldn’t be too difficult to pick up a few extra hours of tutoring here and there.
There’s art, a harbor, museums, national parks and beautiful hills perfect for scenic walks. Concepcion will surprise, please and welcome you.
